SKIN-FRIENDLY NURSING BRA FOR BREASTFEEDING MOTHERS WITH ECZEMA
by Hiu Tung (Tiffany) YUN
After numerous studies it is clearly establish that breastfeeding help the immune system of babies. For a young mother able to breastfeed she will most likely choose to do so even if it can cause some pains. Living in a city such as Hong Kong you cannot escape pollution. Polluted air can affect skin condition, dryness, redness, cracking, breast eczema… Today, we can find multitudinous choices of nursing bra but limited on the choice of materials used.
During her research, Tiffany has interviewed numbers of mothers with breastfeeding experience, evaluated existing nursing bra, and explored different skin-friendly fabrics that could offer a reliable solution for Nursing bras. Finally, a prototype with Seacell fabric is designed and developed for wear trial.
